Origins of surname
This surname has its origins in the lands of Douglas, south of Glasgow, derived from the Gaelic dubh = 'black' and glas = 'stream'.
Although other families have passed through Jersey, it was the descendants of Robert Douglas and Anna Maria Ashenhurst who were the main family to become established in the island throughout the 19th century.
